Getting to and from school safely

As a parent or carer, it’s your responsibility to get your child to and from school safely. Student safety is our priority.

Keep our school community safe by:

  • driving and parking safely, even if it means parking further away and walking the rest of the way to school
  • being a good role model
  • never calling your child from across the road
  • using the safest place to cross the road.

For parents and carers of younger children

Discuss with your child how to be safe when:

Also talk about and practise:

  • safe travel routes
  • plans for when unexpected things happen
  • what to do in wet weather.

Bikes and scooters

Children in Year 5 to Year 6 are allowed to ride bicycles and scooters to school, however we consider this a privilege, so we expect safe and responsible behaviour. The children must wear an approved safety helmet and they must obey the road rules and general safety rules. Riders are asked to dismount their bike/scooter to cross the road at the school crossing. They are asked to walk their bike/scooter across the crossing and not to get on again until they are across to the other side. 

Bikes/scooters must be walked into and out of school grounds. If your child is riding his or her bike/scooter to school, please reinforce these points with them for their own safety and the safety of pedestrians. Due to safety concerns skateboards are not permitted at school.​
